Mavericks (rabbits who live apart from a warren) tend to crave stories and interaction. When dealing with one, all storytelling rolls are at +1! Most non-rabbits are vulnerable to storytelling if you can communicate with them, though the GM may increase the effective Will of inherently solitary animals, as well as those who just want to eat you.

Any attempt at storytelling must begin with (unsurprisingly) a story and an audience. The latter must be willing to at least listen
to you! For friendly rabbits, this is easy, but in other cases you may have to use other skills besides Rapport to convince them to lend their ears (e.g., Empathy to figure out what they ''would'' listen to, or Deceive or Provoke to drive home the importance of what you have to say). If you have a present-but-hostile audience (e.g., the cats who have you trapped in a nook, or a kettle that you're blocking exit from), you can attempt a roll, but they resist a an extra +2.

Any attempt at storytelling must begin with (unsurprisingly) a story. First, roll against Rapport to get others to listen to you. For rabbits, the difficulty is their average Will if they're not in the mood for a story or Mediocre (0) if they are. Success holds their attention; success with style grants you a boost for your follow-up roll.

After that,
you must spend about 10-15 minutes telling a story. If you, the ''player,'' are able to tell a good story that's appropriate to the reaction you're going for, the GM may give you a free boost! (Your story shouldn't be 10-15 minutes long in real time; just a minute or so is fine.) At the end of this, make a Rapport roll opposed by the audience's average Will; the GM may increase their effective Will if your suggestion directly opposes their natural feelings. ''Your'' roll is modified by how fully you're trying to enthrall the audience:

'''Requirements:''' Stunt (Storyteller) and Rapport at Average (+1)

Anyone can spin a story, but rabbit storytellers are the stuff of legend. They can captivate an audience, enthralling them and bringing them into the tale; this can change the way they feel about something, or even spur them into action! The Storyteller stunt enhances the Rapport skill so that it can be used with the rules below.

Mavericks (rabbits who live apart from a warren) tend to crave stories and interaction. When dealing with one, all storytelling rolls are at +1! Most non-rabbits are vulnerable to storytelling if you can communicate with them, though the GM may increase the effective Will of solitary animals, as well as those who just want to eat you.

Any attempt at storytelling must begin with (unsurprisingly) a story. First, roll against Rapport to get others to listen to you. For rabbits, the difficulty is their average Will if they're not in the mood for a story or Mediocre (+0) if they are. Success holds their attention; success with style grants you a boost for your follow-up roll.

After that, you must spend about 10-15 minutes telling a story. If you, the ''player,'' are able to tell a good story that's appropriate to the reaction you're going for, the GM may give you a free boost! (Your story doesn't have to be 10-15 minutes long in real time; just a few minutes is fine.) At the end of this, make a Rapport roll opposed by the audience's average Will; the GM may increase effective Will if your suggestion directly opposes their natural feelings. Your roll is modified by how fully you're trying to enthrall the audience:

* '''+1:''' You just want them to react favorably or unfavorably toward a particular person, group, or idea.
* '''No Modifier:''' You're trying to inspire a more complex emotion (e.g., fear of another warren encroaching).
* '''-1:''' You're trying to get them to take a safe, easy action (e.g., letting you go).
* '''-2:''' You're trying to get them to take a slightly risky or detrimental action (e.g., giving you their truffles).
* '''-3:''' You're trying to get them to take an outright dangerous action (e.g., overthrow the king).
* '''-4:''' You're trying to get them to take a potentially deadly action (e.g., attack the fox den).

When dealing with four or fewer animals, success enthralls them for at least an hour while success with style lasts at least a day. When dealing with lots, success with 1, 2, or 3 shifts enthralls 1/3, 2/3, or all of them for at least an hour while success with style past ''that'' threshold lasts at least a day. Treat this as a created advantage.

In all cases, if the inspired feeling meshed closely with their existing beliefs and/or is producing clearly favorable results, the actual duration may be indefinite. In contrast, if things start to go very badly, they can make Will rolls to overcome the advantage and snap out of it.
